At NWCEAI, this is what we believe, what we teach, and what we are committed to sharing.  

How do you need to respond expressively and creatively?

Northwest Creative & Expressive Arts Institute would like to invite you to send us your poetry, paintings, and prose; share your dramatic response, a page from your art journal, creative movement, a musical performance, a craft, or whatever helps right now. Please send us videos, photos, writing, & recordings and we will post whatever we can to our gallery page on our website or share it via Facebook or Instagram. Let’s get through this together!
